Retail business activities can be successfully automated with Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS). Originally QuickSell 2000, the MS RMS system allows for effortless checkout with its point of sale application, successful marketing initiatives with customer relationship management (CRM), and stock level control with inventory management.
Microsoft POS software is best for small to medium-sized retail businesses. The system is customized for most specialty retailers, but not strongly for service and hospitality specialties. Examples of strong specialties include apparel stores, gift stores, furniture stores, office supply stores and bookstores.
RMS is offered in two different packages. Store Operations is customized for individual retail stores, and Headquarters is best for retailers that operate multiple stores and want to analyze data from one headquarter location.
“Store Operations” includes POS, CRM, inventory control, and employee management applications. If users are more focused on reporting and performance analytics, “Headquarters” can access data from all other users.
Microsoft Retail Management Software can be run by users on Windows XP/2000, Windows Embedded for Point of Service, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2003.
